In this segment…

An overview of an ordinance to establish a police accountability board was provided Tuesday to the Frederick County Council.

Under the bill, the police accountability board would hold quarterly meetings with law enforcement agencies to work on ways to improve policing in the county. It would also appoint civilian members to Charging Committees and trial boards, and receive complaints about officer misconduct. And on or before December 31st, the board would submit a report to the County Council, the County Executive and each municipality in Frederick County which has a police force on  disciplinary trends,  and make recommendations.
